Best place in Arugam Bay (promised!)”

Everything. Dern and his family are very friendly and helpful and know the best place for dinner and breakfast ;) Deen is very funny and professional, we took some surfing lessons with him and improved a lot in one week! Felt like home at this place and stayed way longer than expected. The rooms are spacious, especially the bathroom, we had one room with AC. It got a big bed with a mosquito net (which we didn‘t need) and a nice terrace with a hammock (loved it!). Since I was sick for a few days, the family brought me tea and food - the vibe is very chilling and you feel very welcomed. Thank you so much Deen!
Nothing, wanted to stay for years! 😉

The place was absolutely great! The beds were comfortable and there is a fast wifi-connection. The bathroom was much bigger than expected and refreshingly clean!! But the truly best feature of this guest house is the owner Deen and his girlfriend Stephanie. We were met with such hospitality that we felt at home. The owner Deen is a very welcoming and open person to talk to and helps whenever needed! He also did a great job as a surfing instructor und helped me to overcome my fear. We also had a chilled out night at the beach together with lots of laughter.

A really good place to stay at arugam bay and take surflessons!”

The location was really good. You are at the beach in 1 Minute. The host was really helpful with all our questions. The beach is very good and a pair of good Restaurants are near by. Nifras has also a German girlfriend, which could help us if we don&#39;t understand something :) a really nice place!

Near to the clean beach, not to much waves. But for those who want to jump is fine also. Room comfortable, good AC and fan. Comfortable bed. They give you an access to kitchen so you can take your coffee and use the fridge.The host Deen is super nice and open-minded. So you can learn something from him about Sri Lanka.
Everything was fine:-)

I had a really great stay at Surf Beach Hotel. Deen, the person running the place, will make sure that everything meets your expectations. The place is really clean and beautiful and it&#39;s literally a few meters from the beach! Deen and his mum even let me use their kitchen as the day after I arrived the Covi-19 curfew started. I had booked for one night and ended up staying for over two weeks 😊!
